I think this is a great question that needs be clarified. I am in the process of shopping for a new laptop and many of the newest models boast of "Optimus". I intend to run Linux on the box and I need to know if "Not supported" means "It won;t work at all" or "automatic switching won't work".

Please if anyone can give a good clear answer it would be very helpful to me.
